First snow in memory in Baghdad: Global Warming?

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SU2VYmh5BPM]

Since global warming is not just about heat, it is about weather extremes, I guess this report of snow in Baghdad, Iraq, can go with my 65 degrees in NY in January post. I would say that we have a problem with climate here…guess I will keep gathering examples, while scientists gather data, and the corporate media makes it all sound like a day in the park…

From Yahoo news:
A first! Snow falls in Baghdad

By CHRISTOPHER CHESTER, Associated Press Writer 2 hours, 34 minutes ago

BAGHDAD – After weathering nearly five years of war, Baghdad residents thought they’d pretty much seen it all. But Friday morning, as muezzins were calling the faithful to prayer, the people here awoke to something certifiably new.

For the first time in memory, snow fell across Baghdad.

Although the white flakes quickly dissolved into gray puddles, they brought an emotion rarely expressed in this desert capital snarled by army checkpoints, divided by concrete walls and ravaged by sectarian killings — delight.

“For the first time in my life I saw a snow-rain like this falling in Baghdad,” said Mohammed Abdul-Hussein, a 63-year-old retiree from the New Baghdad area.

“When I was young, I heard from my father that such rain had fallen in the early ’40s on the outskirts of northern Baghdad,” Abdul-Hussein said, referring to snow as a type of rain. “But snow falling in Baghdad in such a magnificent scene was beyond my imagination.”
